Thank you for taking the time to express your concern. When the library was renovated several years ago, “green lighting” fixtures were installed. Depending on the natural light in the library, the lights should self-adjust. When it is sunny outside, the increased natural light should trigger the lights to automatically turn off, allowing us to save energy. Unfortunately, some of these fixtures are starting to malfunction. I suspect that is what is happening on the lower level of the library. I appreciate you taking the time to report the problem. We will contact building maintenance as soon as possible. Please contact me directly if you would like to discuss this in more detail.
